Effective 29 June 2015, work permit and work patent holders have seven working days to inform the Russian immigration authorities of any changes to their name or passport details, or face a fine.
Notification of Changes
If a foreign national’s name
or passport details change they now have seven working days to apply to
the issuing immigration authorities in Russia for correction of their
work permit or work patent.
Previously the law did not specify an exact timeframe for making such corrections.
Who is Affected?
The new requirement is applicable to holders of standard work permits, Highly Qualified Specialist work permits and work patents.
Breach of the newly established seven-day notification deadline is considered to be an administrative violation which leads to a fine for the foreign national of 4000RUB to 5000RUB (approximately 75-95USD).
